The Elf On The Shelf
Your Elf is Waiting..............
The delightful tradition of Elf on a Shelf goes back generations. This little guy would sit on various shelves throughout the Christmas season keeping an eye on all of the little boys and girls. Back when they were first created, they came in red and green, which added to the Christmas décor. The elf stories, as well as the toy elves came to America from Europe and were already a tradition for many who first came to the United States. Elf on a Shelf has grown to be a tradition for many families throughout the years.
Elves, as folklore goes, help Santa in a variety of ways. They keep busy in the workshop making toys for all of the good little boys and girls, and are very loyal to St. Nick. In the 1970’s Carol Aebersold began her own family tradition which quickly caught on and became the new Elf on a Shelf craze that delights children and adults around the world. Carol, along with her daughter, Chanda A. Bell, created books which told of the elves who watch over the children by day, then report back to Santa at night. These little elves are called “scouts” who, after returning from their nightly reports to Santa, always land in a different part of the room. Children quickly begin to anticipate waking up and looking for the mischievous little elf.
